Spend Spring Break with

INTERNATIONAL CHESS ACADEMY (ICA)

 

For over 20 years, ICA has been serving the NY metropolitan chess community by offering classes led by highly trained and elite coaches while hosting tournaments and camps for motivated and competitive students.

 

Time to secure your child’s spot! 
 

Morning chess lessons are arranged for different levels based on experience and all focus on strategy, tactics and end-game training. Afternoon Chess tournaments let our campers put into practice what they have learned in the lessons. 

ICA’s spring activities are more than just Chess and are designed to improve strategic thinking, memory and logic, while letting campers explore creativity, imagination and most importantly, allowing them to meet other children, form friendships, and have fun. Our counselors excel in their fields and are all enthusiastic teachers. 

At ICA camps, confidence is reinforced by success at every level and in a multitude of disciplines. Your child is encouraged to get out of their comfort zone by competing in the chess arena, and sportsmanship and camaraderie are reinforced and rewarded. 

We pride ourselves in giving campers the opportunity to explore interests such as Art, Music, Math, and Athletics (our summer dodgeball and soccer tournaments are legendary), while building friendships that last well past summer. ​
